take it up a notch at a time, and when you start to see speckles on the screen, or when the computer locks up randomly, then you went too far.
then you will have to remove the drivers and reinstall them.
you do that by the safe mode method, since you will not be able to boot into windows if you overclock too far...
i did it once, and couldnt boot into windows until i removed the drivers, and reinstalled them...
unless someone else knows a better way....

Best way to overclock your card is by coolbits. (the OC settings in the advanced options of you're graphic driver settings)
If you want to know more about it go to www.guru3D.com
If you overclock, go in steps of 5-10 mhz with the memory first (gives best performance gain).
Run a 3D game after each tweak, if artifacts or a crash ocured you went too far. Normaly 2D will only fail if you overclocked in too big steps (since 3D is the first thing to fail)
If it happens that even 2D fails, hold CTRL while windows boot and the nvidia drivers will reset your card to factory settings. (Much more easy than a reïnstall)
